ISA Arts EYFS and Primary

We at the ISA recognise the importance of supporting the arts at all stages of learning within our schools. We have expanded our programme to include competitions specifically for EYFS and Primary pupils at ISA Members’ schools. These competitions give young children the opportunity to engage with their creative skills both individually and in groups.
